The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET) said on Tuesday that Nigerians should be prepared to confront more hot days, warm nights and heat waves in the days and months to come.

NIMET attributes the unfavourable whether conditions to the increasing global greenhouse emission, adding that current atmospheric warming will continue beyond 2100.

In a statement signed by NIMET’s Public Relations Manager, Ms. Eva Azinge, which was made available to the media in Abuja, she said the global average air temperature of the earth is already 1°C hotter than it was at the start of the twentieth century.

While underscoring the importance of the 2016 World Meteorological Day, with the theme: ‘Hotter, Drier Wetter, Face the Future’ she said it was to draw the attention of governments on the impact of climate change on natural resources, humans and environment.

She said: “This preparation will require smart adaptation strategies and engaging in climate resilient practices to cope with the damage that has been done. There is also need for continuous effective mitigation actions to stem further emissions.”

Azinge, said it has been demonstrated that, human influence has been responsible for warming of the atmosphere and the ocean, changes in the global water cycle, reductions in snow and ice, global mean sea level rise, and changes in some climate extremes.
